Team Bowel Babe, Team Times

Deb James was dear to me. While I always listen to this amazing podcast, today’s tribute was the most moving, the most beautiful of the many I’ve seen. Thank you for your journalism everyday, but today especially.

US Post-Roe

Your coverage of the US abortion status and the Supreme Court’s decision was inaccurate and one-sided. I was very disappointed that your coverage was politically one-sided. Please make an effort to review US laws and constitutional system before promoting a biased opinion.

Great podcast

A great podcast and solid, balanced journalism. The latest episode called “The Taliban will kill me” is incredibly sad and infuriating. Everyone should take a listen to it.
